Theresa May said in a letter to Mr Williamson that she had 'compelling evidence' that he was responsible for the leak, and that she'd 'lost confidence in his ability to serve'.

Why are you being so secretive of and so ashamed of letting Huawei develop your 5G network?

Make up your mind UK. If you want your 5G network to be made in UK, then just let UK's company do it for you. Otherwise, Huawei can be a brilliant company to setup your 5G network.

White people in general a Devils 😈, who only care about themselves. The UK actually wants to invade Africa, it is only a staged plot to expose him. Trusting white people is like, seeing and knowing the Devil and still dealing with the devil. All this is fake news, don't buy it this crap!
A white man/woman can kill you and still smile at you whiles you die a slow death. They're all demons and money lovers, hiding in plain sight. Pretending to give a damn.

Theresa May has sacked Gavin Williamson as Defence Secretary despite his "strenuous" denial that he was responsible for the unprecedented leak of information from the National Security Council (NSC).

Theresa May acted following the leak of secret discussions surrounding the Huawei 5G contract.

The NSC sees ministers meet with heads of security and intelligence agencies to hold top secret discussions.
